Good Smile Company is going to release the Hayakawa Yuzuko ( 早川柚子 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the manga “Yuzuko Peppermin” ( 柚子ペパーミント ) by Daisato X Masaru☆Gotsubo serialized in Young GanGan. Will be released in March 2010. Around 300mm tall, 9,333 yen. Bundled with drama CD and phamphlet.
It seems that GSC put a lot ( I mean A LOT) afford on this Hayakawa Yuzuko figure. There are a lot of video on niconico by GSC about this figure and they even make a drama CD for her. But she is so $$$! I wish I could just buy this figure alone with out the CD and plamphlet. GSC should make a standard edition with the figure only and a DX version will all the other stuff. I hate GSC. =/
Anyway, I never read the manga “Yuzuko Peppermin” and actually I don’t even know this manga exist at all until I saw this Hayakawa Yuzuko figure in Dengeki Character Festival 2009. I would love to read this manga if I could get my hand on one.
——Description from Manufacturer——
‘Smash! Pulverize!’ – a figure, drama CD and phamphlet set!
From the manga currently serialized in YOUNG GANGAN magazine, authored by Dai Satou and drawn by Maseru Gotsubo – ‘Yuzuko Peppermint’, comes a PVC figure of the stylish, silent high school girl, ‘Yuzuko Hayakawa’!
Yuzuko is the wielder of the special ability ‘Peppermint’, that acts as a powerful stimulant whenever she becomes angered. Her normal long black straight hair, as well as the peppermint green hair are both included, allowing you to pose her both before and after using her ‘Peppermint’ ability. The huge iron ball she wields whilst fighting, ‘Shiranuhi’ is also included.
The figure will be sold together with an original drama CD story, written by Dai Satou, placed on a drama CD with a wonderful cast, as well as a booklet including illustrations by Maseru Gotsubo!
